Recent News About NGLCC:


What does the NGLCC do?

The NGLCC was founded upon the fact that the 1.4 million LGBT entrepreneurs and their businesses are an economic powerhouse; GLBTBEs annually contribute $1.7 trillion to the overall economy and should be recognized, respected, and sought out as vendors. In addition, the NGLCC wanted to demonstrate that being out wasn't an economic liability, but an asset. Within two years of its genesis the NGLCC developed a diversity certification program for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transexual-owned businesses.

The members of the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce also work diligently to build partnerships with major companies and promote their efforts to maintain a diverse workforce while developing LGBT-owned supply chains. Local chambers help LGBT businesspeople network, increase their business, and grow relationships within their communities.
